    The Cardinal Newman Society ^ | 3/26/14 | Matthew Archbold
    1887 Trust, an organization committed to promoting Gonzaga University’s Catholic identity, is pointing to the Jesuit University’s exclusion from the most recent edition of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute’s (ISI) “Choosing the Right College” to call the University to recommit to its Catholic identity. The editor of the guide, John Zmirak, in an interview with the Trust, pointed to the decrease in Catholic identity since the departure of Father Robert Spitzer as president of the Jesuit university. “Gonzaga had shown promise under the leadership of Father Spitzer,” he reportedly said. “The change of administration, and the termination of Father Spitzer’s policies,...

    Two Gonzaga University seniors are on the verge of being expelled after using a gun to defend themselves from a career criminal trying to break into their apartment. Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh, who both live in an off-campus near the school’s Spokane, OR., campus, were accosted last month by a man demanding money while standing in the door of their apartment. Mr Fagan offered food and a blanket, but declined to give ex-con John Taylor any money, he told KHQ. Mr Taylor then tried to fight his way into the apartment but was scared off by Mr McIntosh’s hand...

    Catholic Gonzaga University Won’t Allow Catholic Students To Form Catholic Group The Daily Caller. Roman Catholic, Jesuit-affiliated Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington has refused to recognize the Knights of Columbus as an official student group because — wait for it — the Knights of Columbus is a Catholic organization. Gonzaga administrators notified the students who had sought the school’s official seal of approval last month, reports The Cardinal Newman Society’s Catholic Education Daily. “The Knights of Columbus, by their very nature, is a men’s organization in which only Catholics may participate via membership,” reads a letter written by Sue Weitz,...

    Insight Scoop ^ | March 26, 2011 | Carl Olson
    This developing story is unbelievable. Well, not really. But, first, the believable: for some time now there has been a strong push by various faculty members and students at Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA) to have an on-campus production of "The Vagina Monologues" (TVM). Fomer president Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., while head of the Jesuit school (1998-2009), twice refused productions of the play; it was also vetoed last year. But now, it appears, TVM may very well be performed this year on the Gonzaga campus. Dr. Eric Cunningham, a professor of history at the school, wrote the following letter to The...

    Denver, Colo., Sep 30, 2009 / 03:35 pm (CNA).- Contemporary astrophysics hold the scientific key to prove the existence of God, but unfortunately very few know the scientific facts, said Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J, PhD, during a conference delivered on Sunday at the John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization in Denver, Colorado. The Honolulu-born Jesuit is the past president of Gonzaga University and is also well-known philosopher and physicist who is involved in bringing science and theology together. Fr. Spitzer is currently engaged in an ambitious project to explain the metaphysical consequences of the latest astrophysical discoveries,...

    A group of students, faculty and staff under the name GU Affirms Equality released a letter to the community last week affirming "the spiritual, political, moral and social equality of the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender] members of the Gonzaga community." The letter, which heavily cites Vatican documents and Catholic teaching, seeks to show that the Catholic Church's teachings affirm members of the LGBT community, and that recent actions on the part of the Vatican, including language addressing homosexuality in the priesthood, has not been consistent with the Church's overall teachings on homosexuality. These teachings prohibit malicious and offensive language...

    SPOKANE, WA--According to a recent survey, every white person in America is secretly rooting for the Gonzaga Bulldogs, a predominantly white NCAA basketball team. In the past few years, the Bulldogs have overcome tremendous odds to become a nationally ranked team. Their surprising success has earned them a devoted following of every white person in America. “There are a lot of closet Gonzaga fans out there,” said Gonzaga coach Mark Few, who has been with the team seven years. “Many of them care very little about NCAA basketball but they still have a soft spot in their heart for the...

    SPOKANE, Wash. -- Fans of No. 5 Gonzaga have been asked to stop yelling "Brokeback Mountain" at opposing players. The reference to the recent movie about homosexual cowboys was chanted by some fans during Monday's game against Saint Mary's, and is apparently intended to suggest an opposing player is gay. The chants were the subject of several classroom discussions over the past week, and the faculty advisers for the Kennel Club booster group urged students this week to avoid "inappropriate chants" during the Bulldogs' Saturday game against Stanford, which was nationally televised on ESPN.

    SPOKANE -- Gonzaga University, which has rejected recent attempts to bring a Planned Parenthood speaker and "The Vagina Monologues" to the school, now is under fire for the on-campus appearance of a conservative who contends homosexuality is a matter of choice. The College Republicans brought in Dr. John Diggs for a lecture titled "The Medical Effects of Homo-Sex." Some students criticized the lecture in the student newspaper, the Bulletin, as anti-gay and promoting stereotypes. Diggs' appearance Tuesday was intended to foster open debate and inquiry, said Daniel Brutocao, president of the Gonzaga chapter of College Republicans. The speaker focused on...

    Catholic Schools Punish Students for Opposing Homosexuality By Randy Hall CNSNews.com Staff Writer/Editor November 02, 2005 (CNSNews.com) - Two Catholic universities have tried to censor students during the past week for defending the church's teachings against homosexuality, actions the head of one Roman Catholic organization called "ridiculous." One incident took place in Pittsburgh, where a Duquesne University student used an independent website to voice his opposition to a proposed "gay-straight alliance" on campus and described homosexual sex as "subhuman actions." According to the school's website, several students complained to Duquesne's Office of Judicial Affairs, which held a hearing and concluded...

    Matt Krimm looked forward to the arguments with Erik Kristensen. Mr. Krimm graduated from DeMatha Catholic High School, and his friend graduated from Gonzaga. The schools share a long football rivalry, one with a history of tales. There was, for example, the time Gonzaga supporters placed a deer carcass on the front steps of DeMatha, home of the Stags. The schools take the rivalry seriously, and it is not something that simply goes away after graduation. That is one of the beauties of high school sports -- a connection of youth that never fades, something that, 30 years later, Gonzaga...

    The elevation of Pope Benedict XVI to the Papal Suite at the Vatican might give some of America’s Catholic colleges and universities the chance to be more than Catholic in Name Only (CINO). “Catholic theology is not individual reflection but thinking with the faith of the Church,” then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger said in a 1999 U. S. visit. “If you will do other things and have other ideas of what God could be or could not be, there is the freedom of the person to do it, clearly.” “But one should not say this is Catholic theology.” When Nigerian Cardinal Francis...

    Last week, I gave a speech at Gonzaga University - a university I have written about on three separate occasions. After spending two days at this "Catholic" university, I have come to the conclusion that it is far worse than my previous articles had suggested. I use the term "worse," primarily to describe Gonzaga's betrayal of Catholic principles - all in the name of tolerance and diversity. I could try to persuade my readers that my conclusion is correct by simply talking about the gay pride ribbons tied around lampposts and stair rails all around the Gonzaga campus. I could...

    Dear President Spitzer (spitzer@gonzaga.edu): Recently, I received a letter from two third-year law students at Gonzaga University (GU) School of Law. The students described your law school as one that is “secular” and which fraudulently holds itself out to be Catholic. They also stated they had experienced first-hand the school’s trampling of the rights of Christian students. Specifically, they accused GU of violating the rights of their first Christian pro-life group. As a preliminary matter, I understand that your “Catholic” law school has the words of Matthew 22:35-38 emblazoned on one of its walls: “One of them, an expert in...

    Gonzaga University's president, Father Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., has permitted the School of Law's Student Bar Association (SBA) to refuse to recognize a Christian student organization. According to the SBA, the Gonzaga Pro-Life Law Caucus's requirement that its leadership be Christian is "discriminatory." "We live in a strange age, indeed, when a Catholic, Jesuit university would deny a Christian pro-life group recognition because its religious nature is considered 'discriminatory,'" said Greg Lukianoff, director of legal and public advocacy for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).
